How the Pool Table King Came to Be

DKBilliardsIn 1989, I saved enough money to buy a used pool table from a church in Anaheim, California. The table had a non-slate particle wood playing field, and no matter what, the table would not play “true”. I even tried taking the table apart and replacing the half inch particle board with a one-inch thick one. I only found that it played worse! Frustrated, I sold my Meucci cue for a 4X8 slate pool table. The Delta one piece slate table needed many repairs. My friend Mark helped me get the materials to repair the table. I set it up in my backyard and played pool all the time, even joining tournaments at bars and pool halls to practice my game.

I was 20, unemployed and still living at home. My dad gave me an ultimatum – be gainfully employed by the following week or move out and end up with no pool table. I went to Mark’s dad, Dick Johnson, owner of Golden West Billiards in Orange, CA and talked him into letting me work at the shop. I kept my pool table and started with tasks like cleaning the shop, polishing balls and repairing cues. I soon started helping co-worker John Campbell on deliveries and repair jobs, soaking up his 25-year experience. I started to see a great opportunity for my own business.

In 1992, using the knowledge I gained from John Campbell and Mark Johnson, I started out on my own. I had a set of not yet paid for tools in the back of my Peugeot 504 and one roll of green billiard cloth. I solicited every bar and cocktail lounge in the area until they let me service their pool tables. After building up a small base of commercial clients, I decided to expand into the residential market by posting and handing out flyers in the neighborhood. I registered for a business license, placed a small in column ad in the yellow pages and officially became DK Billiard Service in 1993. Customers began inquiring about pool table moving and I began to realize the 504 would not lend itself to this task. I borrowed $1500 from my dad and purchased a 1978 Chevy Van for moving services. I was off and running. In 1998, my Chevy Van, now twenty years old, began to show its years. I purchased a brand new Chevy to take its place. A local artist, Keith Guenther, custom painted the new van (and the two after that) and created the DK logo as it is today.

People Are Talking About Us

This is a great hidden gem in Orange on Chapman Ave. We decided to finally get rid of the formal 'dining' room that sat empty and make it a game room. We purchased a pool table here and they are so nice and so helpful. Rory knows everything there is to know about pool tables and especially the right accessories. Don't go anywhere else!

We had an awesome experience with David and his assistant removing our pool table and transferring to my friends’ house. They were right on time, very professional and responded right away thru texts. He also pointed out that I had a broken piece and some cracks. He actually fixed them for free!! I tried to give him more money and he refused! What a great guy! There are so few people nowadays that are so honorable and my husband and I really appreciate businesses and most of all professionals that go above and beyond! You will not be disappointed! And such a fair price! Thx again David and team!!

The crew over at Dk Billiards have been servicing, recovering or moving my billiard table for the past 15 years. They just left my house today after a new felt job, they cleaned up the balls and fixed a couple pool cues.They never do anything less than a perfect job. If you live in Orange County and have a pool table or want to buy a pool table - DK Billiards is the only place I would go.

Dave was great to deal with, very knowledgeable about his business and very detail oriented while installing the pool table. I missed out on a table DK had for sale due to timing, I did find another table and still reached out to Dave to have it relocated to my home and change the felt. Dave did beat me at the first game 🤷‍♂️ But I dare him to return 🤞⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This review is long over due. I contacted DK Billiard Service and spoke with Dave about 4 years ago. I had purchased a beautiful pool table from an estate sale and needed it moved. Dave and his crew disassemble and transported the table to my home and assembled it on my second floor. Dave’s service ensured the table was level and because the felt needed to be replaced they did that for a reasonable price. Fast forward to last week we decided we no longer needed the pool table and had our contractor start remodeling our home. I called Dave and I was pleasantly surprised when he remembered me as a client. Dave gave me a reasonable price to move the table to my Aunts in about two weeks. I let Dave know we’re remodeling our home and asked if there was a cancellation we would appreciate it sooner. Dave responded immediately and said we would squeeze us to move the table in two days. Talk about customer service! Dave showed up promptly Saturday afternoon and was incredibly kind in dealing with the noise and dust all around him. Dave let me know the leather on the pool table pockets were pretty dry and warned me they might crack when he disassembled the table. Dave gave me reasonable price to replace them and I gave him the ok. He also said there were a couple of white marks on the black felt which I said were fine. After Dave delivered the table to my aunt and uncles home, Dave sent me a text with a picture of my uncle enjoying the table. Dave stated that he was able to flip the felt and it looked brand new. Dave was a gem in helping at the last minute and his customer service is top notch. If anyone needs anything pool table related you won’t be disappointed contacting Dave.

Poor service: showed up 1hr late, helper went to get there tire on there van fixed.

So I had to finish putting pooltable together and Dave charged me full price. So I basically for his guy to go fix there tire while my helper helped him which is very unprofessional!!!Dave, sorry for the misunderstanding on the work that we agreed on doing. The work you did was a very good job. Sorry for the misunderstanding and the phone call, it showed me how much you care about your customersThank you

David is an old-school example of customer service: honest, reliable, and willing to go the extra mile. He could have talked me into more since I had told him the old felt was no good, but he made a house call to inspect the table, and was able to use the other side of the felt while putting my pool table back together after moving, saving me money. The service was very reasonably priced (he was here for hours--i didn't realize how labor intensive re-constructing the table was), and he re-tipped my cues as well. This is the place to go for pool table services.

Dave is just the best. That's all there is to it. When he came out to move our office table, I described my table at home. I couldn't remember the name but when I told him my rails were hard as rock, he knew exactly who the manufacturer was. They used subpar rubber that only lasted for 5-7 years. I asked him to come out to fix the rubber and put on new cloth (and while looking at the table, I asked for new pockets as well). Not only did he take the rails with him, he took a few cues for service, measured the area in the room and recommended moving the table six inches in one direction and four in another (which doesn't sound like much but it makes shooting much easier now). After he finished the rails, he came out and moved the table, re-sealed the slate, re-leveled, added the cloth, rail and pockets and had me test it out. It was like shooting on a brand new table. Dave is AWESOME and I would recommend him to any and all.

In 2010 David moved a table from my parents house to ours. Table is a 3 piece slate Golden West Table. I also had it recovered and bumpers replaced. Move and refurbish was perfect. Bought some extra cues, new triangle & accessories plus a high end cue for my wife. We played on it last night like we always do and I thought to myself this table is as good a table as it was in 1976 when my Dad bought it for our family. Besides our family taking incredible care of it for over 40 years, the quality restoration that was done in 2010 has made all the difference 7 years later! If you are looking for professional quality craftsmanship in the moving and restoration of your table because you really care about it, this is the family business to use. Clearly the review score is obvious testament.

David was an amazing help at an affordable price. I had to move a pool table from LA county to Orange County and he did just that. His knowledge of pool tables is well displayed by him and his crews ability to swiftly and safely dismantle and move the table. He also noted my bumpers needed replacing after the rubber had hardened over the years and showed me just how bad it was compared to a new bumpers. He gave me a reasonable price for replacing those as well.All in all great experience and will contact him again for any future pool table needs.(He also saw I had mismatched colors for felt and chalk and gave me a set to match for free!)

We wanted our table moved so we could re-carpet. I called DK Billiards and was provided pricing and quick scheduling. They arrived exactly when they promised, were very personable, clean and careful, and came back two days later to re-felt and re-install the table. David took great care to ensure that our previously poorly leveled table was perfect! I absolutely recommend him and DK Billiards.

AMAZING! I have so many good things to say about this awesome couple and their business.Dave and this wife are fantastic owners and operators of DK Billiards. I had a horrible experience with TriBilliards ( do not go there! ) And had limited time to get my pool table done before a party in 3 days. His wife was so sincere to my troubles and promised she would do everything she could to help get it done for me.Dave Got back to me in minutes and explained that it takes more time then we had to do things the way they should be done, which he said is the way he operates his business, he will not do a sub par job just to get it done. I really appreciated his honesty and the pride he has in the quality of his work.We came up with the only possible solution to get it done and still accomplish the level of craftsmanship. I pulled the rails, prepped the, and brought them to him the next day. Dave has done everything in his power to get this table done for me without compromising his quality and holding to the same due dates he promised his other customers ahead of me.I am so appreciative of DK Billiards and their help. So appreciative that they have become my first review ever! My second will be a poor review of TriBilliardsFantastic quality, customer service, follow-up, and did I mention already Service! at DKBILLIARDS!Worth EVERY penny!

DK Billiards really came through for my family when we were looking to 'upgrade' our pool table so that it looked acceptable in our family room. My husband who is a 'huge' Lakers fan asked that the table felt be in Lakers colors The owner, David Kay, didn't even bat an eye! The job was done quickly, in a highly professional way, and the table served our family well for many years.When the time came for us to relocate our table to "a better place", DK Billiards was there to help. I loved the way their staff took care of all the details and made the experience effortless. I highly recommend this "owner-operated" business as the place to go for all of your pool table needs!
